Sleek Icon Set Brings Elegance to Weather Forecasting Applications With Realistic Graphics for Any Weather Condition

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Aug. 23, 2010 — Guifx, an interface design studio specializing in touchscreen interfaces for home automation and embedded systems, today announced the availability of its new weather icons. Designed by Guifx’s world-class artists, the set of 32 realistic icons adds a touch of elegance to any weather forecasting application, and can be mixed and matched to represent any weather condition.

Guifx’s new weather icons allow integrators to differentiate themselves from the competition by providing the end user with unique, easily recognizable graphics for their touchpanel’s weather forecasting applications. For high-resolution touchpanels, the icons are offered in a 512 x 512 size to accent the graphics’ sleek design, and can be quickly batch-resized using Guifx’s CoPilot software for lower-resolution devices.

Utilizing weather icons from Guifx offers significant advantages to installers and manufacturers over outsourcing or creating art in-house. In addition to receiving design quality that is second to none, Guifx’s customers can see what they are getting before they make a purchase, they know exactly how much it will cost, and the weather icons are available for immediate download 24/7. A cost-effective solution, once the icon set is licensed for inclusion in a product or software, its use is unlimited. (more…)
